The Requests for Proposals are available at www.sustainourgreatlakes.org (Click on Apply). Please consider submitting an application by the February 15, 2012 deadline.
The Stewardship Grants Program supports large-scale habitat restoration and enhancement projects that will have enduring and significant positive impacts on the ecological condition of the Great Lakes basin. Grant awards will range from $150,001 to $1.5 million.
The Community Grants Program supports habitat restoration and enhancement projects that simultaneously: 1) improve local habitat conditions and 2) build local conservation capacity. Grant awards will range from $25,000 to $150,000.
